If the Habs win, they go to the playoffs. If the Leafs win, they go to the bar and cheer for the Devils on Sunday, because they'll still need help to get into the playoffs.

This is the SIXTH hockey thread today... is everybody feeling okay up there?

Of course, that's assuming the Isles can get past the juggernaut that is the Flyers tomorrow afternoon.

anyone else see Anaheim gag away the chance to clinch the Pacific not once, but TWICE.

Dallas scored to tie the game with 6 seconds left in regulation. Then Selanne had a chance to win it in the shootout and rang the post. Incredible!

I'd rather Toronto make it. More interesting for them to play the Sabres.

Really? I thought the habs-sabres games were some of the best I've seen all year, and I do have the centre ice package.

Once again Go Habs Go!

Dear subby,
You cannot in good consciousness like both the Leafs and the Habs. These fan bases are mutually exclusives. It's part of the Canadian Charter.

That being said, Go Habs Go.

Nope, sorry, but if the Habs win they are in regardless of what the Islanders do, the Islander need the Leafs to win.

Habs will have 92 points and 43 wins if they take this game, the Islanders can get 93 points but with only 40 wins. Habs take it on the tie-breaker.
 
2007-04-07 01:27:09 AM  
err, make that 92 points for the Islanders as well

Go Montreal!
 
2007-04-07 02:00:58 AM  
I'm gonna root for Montreal 'cause I'm a Sens fan and therefore, Toronto sucks.

But I'd still love the Sens to get some retribution against the Leafs in the playoffs. But that ain't happenin' this year. (Even if the Leafs make it in, they ain't beating Buffalo. That chore will be reserved for the Senators.)

That's the first time i've ever seen or heard those two lines together.
 
2007-04-07 04:07:23 AM  
On the one hand, it would be amusing for the leafs to win, just to string leafs fans along for a little longer, because they're not going to win anything in the playoffs if they make it, which they wont.

On the other hand, I do take much joy from watching leafs fans flop around like dead fish when all hope is lost, and the sooner it happens, the better.

I'm so conflicted! Why does God love me so?

This will be a game for the ages. One of those hockey games, like the Good Friday Massacre, or the Too Many Men on the Ice game, that people talk aboot for years. Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!

Unless the Leafs (spit) win in regulation. Then it's Go Isles Go!

Do you need a footstool or a ladder to help you reach like that?

Yeah, because it's easy to win a Cup when the team doesn't exist.

Isles up 3-0.

It's looking less and less implausible that the Isles snag the 8th spot. I hope to see it happen.

I'd love to see both Toronto and Montreal left out in the cold, and shut both those fanbases up, after they've been hyping tonight's game as if it's the game of the century or something.
 
2007-04-07 02:38:57 PM  
Sabres up 2-0 after two.

If Buffalo holds on to win, they win their first President's Trophy in franchise history, regardless of how much Detroit beats up on Chicago.
 
2007-04-07 03:54:08 PM  
There's a lot more riding on this than getting into the playoffs for Montreal. This is make or break time for Guy Carbonneau and his staff. A first round elimination wouldn't be bad, they'll just build for next year. Miss the playoffs completely, changes will be made on all levels. I have always been a big fan of Guy and his assistant Kirk Muller. Two good people that I hope to see behind the bech next year.

And oh yeah, LEAFS BLOW!

I'm a Leafs fan and I honestly hope they lose tonight. I just want the the ridiculous "if we make the playoffs, we could win the cup! Look at Edmonton last year" talk to end. This team is a pile of crap. Sundin is NOT worth $6mil, McMuffin isn't anywhere near a $2mil player let alone a $5.5mil player. Kubina is the largest waste of money in the NHL this year (even more than Samsonov). JFJ is the worst GM in hockey. He's a nice guy, but has no ability to judge the value of hockey players. Bad trades, bad contracts ... all around just BAD. Hopefully two years of no playoffs might convince the teachers to put an experienced President/GM in place like what they did with the Raptors. Sigh. Oh yeah ... and they should fire Richard Peddie.

Isles beat Philly 4-2.

I think the Leafs are now the least likely team to make it.

Montreal controls their own destiny. Win and they're in. Even if they lose in OT/SO, they can still get in with an Isles loss tomorrow.

Isles can get in as long as Montreal fails to get 2 points tonight. If the Habs lose in regulation or OT/SO, then the Isles will control their own destiny tomorrow afternoon. They will also be facing a win-and-in situation.

The Leafs are the longest shot remaining. Not only must they win in regulation tonight (a win in OT/SO will still eliminate them), but they also need for the Isles to lose tomorrow. Even if Toronto wins tonight in regulation, they don't control their playoff destiny.

So if I have it figured correctly, the likelihood of each team making the playoffs now goes Montreal > Isles > Toronto.
